Forty-eight brand new bicycle parking lockers have been installed around the city by the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA). A bike locker is the most secure type of public bicycle parking and is one of the best ways to get peace of mind when leaving your bike behind, whether it be for 30 minutes or all day long.
With biking becoming more and more popular in San Francisco, it is no surprise that bike parking is in high demand. If you’re looking to park your bike for an extended period of time, the sidewalk racks found around the city might not be enough for your needs. The new lockers give you yet another option to park your bike securely, whether you’re getting groceries or locking up overnight.
Hearing the need, the SFMTA has installed an additional 48 electronic bike lockers in parking garages around San Francisco. These new lockers are available for anyone to use and are roomy enough to fit your bike and all of your accessories. All you need to access the new lockers is a BikeLink card, permitting you to rent out the locker for as long as you want for a small fee. Check out the SFMTA’s bike locker webpage for the a full set of details.
Take a look at the map below to see where these new lockers have landed. If none of them are near a location you frequent by bike, be sure to request a sidewalk rack where you know that there’s a need for more secure bike parking.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition continues to work extensively to open up more secure bike parking and reduce bike theft in our city, beyond just bike lockers. To learn more about how to lock your bike securely, visit sfbike.org/theft.
